Yiz are a crowd of blathers - slabbering away here for over 12 years!

I remember being here in the old days - back in 2001 when Hardy used to be Hardyarse.


was that before or after the fiddler?

Is any Mayo man as upset as a Roscommon man about young Akram young lad.... on my limited viewing saw nithing to show he was county senior material.....

Limited viewing would be the best description you could put on yourself alright.

Back in your corner.

Ignoring the petulant prepubescent,
Calling mayomen as opposed to the  Sufferus..... is Akram non selection a scandal
As a Ballagh Mayo man I would say no is the answer. Sharoize is a talent but he still needs to work on parts of his game. He’s really unlucky that he’s in a line of the team that is so strong. If he works on his skills and develops more physically then I think he’ll be looked at again.
Akram seemed to have got a lot broader this years and playing more aggressively . looks more like an old style corner back now than a flying wing back

What a bluffer this man is. The James Horan show is well and truly back. 100 players trialed but what’s the odds 13 of the established players start in the first big championship test? I’ll come back to this post in July. Horan has the best Mayo panel ever and messed up. Why does he have to give a running commentary about what’s going on in mayo football?
well if he et 2 new player that ok of a return .

any word on a final panel apart from ah refs version?

tiers are a good idea bit as Parkinson says your tier must be your aim from the beginning of the year and not a consolation prize . if you win it you then go up .
I would  not like to see more than 3 tiers .  one for the vey weak counties Kilkenny limerick wicklow roscommon  and the like . one for the top 8 to 10  and the rest in the middle . they don't all have to be of equal size .
like a peoper super 98 with every one playing every one or home and away games too increase familiarity

and the wedge thickens
now Liverpool are looking to push their brand on the back of Sean cox  by having a match in Croker.
a far more worthy case but  if Liverpool feel guilt over what happened to Sean cox they should cover his medical bill and not use him as a promotional tool

You said one of it's principles was not to enrich individuals. That's not strictly true.

Maybe check what enrichment means: making people rich.
Like Ed Sheerin? Garth Brookes? Westlife?
not members of the association , not competitors of the GAA indeed not sports men at all
complete red herring

Why is the GAA held to such different standard to other gaes just saw highlight from munsters brawl last weekend . 2 massive punch up not a peep from anywhere.
is it tat thuggery is so ingrained in Rigby that no one even notices it any more?

Any member's of the Munster management chin a player on the blind side? Any Munster players jump the fence?
List the last few massive punch ups in Rugby you've seen prior to last weekend.  Do rugby players / management usually take their punishment and move on?
why wouldn't they no one was suspended its not like anyone put his foot over the offside line ,

heres a selection of the jolly japes you rugger folk get up to

or the legal violence that caused the premature retirements in 2018 alone of
sam wharbuton
Christian wade
Joe Marler

Much to respond to there Iceman.

No, I wouldn't want my family or myself living in a middle eastern society. It has nothing to do with Islam in isolation - it's the combination of the society that I have no interest in. I wouldn't want us living in an Asian culture either necessarily

So long as you continue to hold this view below - I have to argue you are straying into being morally crooked as opposed to straight. That is an incredibly large, and ignorant brush stroke (no matter how much you claim to know about Islam - which I won't argue could be more than me).

Islam is dangerous. True Islam is dangerous. I don't think it has a place in a functioning, peaceful western society.

You have always been devoted to the Catholic Church - what does your religion and your religious leader state about Islam? I doubt very much the Pope would let you slide with the above.

Equating sexual with any religion or race is just stupid .
some men rape women
some men rape children
some men rape other men
some Roscommon men rape sheep

the men are TV producers Priests , Journalists, Immans , social workers , scout leader gaa coaches swin coaches soccer coaches , judges ETC
they are are catholic ,prod ,Jew ,atheist, muslim hindu humanist, animist  ETC
they live in Ireland England usa Pakistan india Russian japan ETC

The closet thing to a common factor is the 95% of the time it is men, We have set moral standard we cant live by but for the sake of civilization all we can do is keep trying
now let he who is without sin cast the 1st stone

There's going to have to be some very extenuating circumstances to warrant Liam Miller's family receiving a million from the match.

I know what Liam Miller earned at United, he was one of the highest paid players at the time as he came on a free and his contract reflected that.

Christ there's some serious bitterness on this thread. If you seen his medical expenses you'd see where the money went. He had treatment in america and tried specialist trials which didn't come cheap. Also anyone who thinks he made 10m is living in dreamworld. He had two seasons at Utd and that's were he made the majority of his money.  While he was on decent wages at Leeds & Sunderland it's nothing compared to the wages players are on today.

You'd like to think people would have sympathy for the widow and 3 young kids, but not in this country. The local hospice got €250,000 through the event, but people don't even acknowledge that. We really are a nation of begrudgers.
its not about his wife and kids . thats a variation  the hit me with the child in the arms defense to avoid examining what exactly happened here .
8,000 people were on hospital Trolleys almost every month last year and you call a fundraiser for a millionaire kids a charity match . 
Treatment was sought in America because he could afford it ,

Has there ever been a bigger BOTTLER in the game more so than Aidan O Shea. Jesus he messes up some finals
I wonder has it anything to do with  the pure unadulterated shite he has to listen to

Whatever about February or March  there are usually 27 weekends from the 1st weekend in April to the 1st weekend in October inclusive.
Can we not designate say 11 weekends for Inter County Championships, 11 for Clubs and 5 flexible weekends?
Should be easier when 2 tier All Ireland SFC comes in.
How you distribute those weekends would require a bit of thought but the aimed would be to have all County Finals played by 1st weekend in October.
4 weekends out of 6 in October /November for Provincial Club Championship and second half November 1st weekend in December for All Ireland Club.

The problem with all these plans is the sheer variety of GAA competitions, at club and county level, in both codes. The overall provincial, national and county Master Fixtures plans are almost incomprehensible in their complexity.

Only a tiny minority of clubs take part in provincial Club Championships and only a subset of these take them anyway seriously. I don't think its a good idea to curtail the entire season for everyone, just to suit this minority.

Heh?? What are you talking about, sure the whole thing can be solved in a post that takes 2 minutes to type.

It's the people who are making the fixtures are stupid and know nothing about fixture making is the real problem here.
the real elephant in the room is no solution will fully work while intercounty players are playing club football

Doesn't most of the money that goes to the family just pay the medical bills as he was treated in America.
Wonder how much will be raised and what they will do with the money? Was a figure released does anyone know?

I hope the Cork county board got their 30 pieces of silver anyway
was the issue not the 30m pieces they took?
every sport gets grants and it doest mean they no longer have any control over what happens their stadiums or facilities.that is a complete red herring

Who did they sell out . read a history book on the GAA will ye.
they opened the pitch to a crowd of backslapping  millionaires i what even they were ashamed to call a charity match .it was a PR excercize  most of them could easily written a cheque to cover what was made in ticket sales .  Soccer Is  the major competitor to the GAA and allowing them to Freeload on the stadiums built by hard Working GAA Club members while John Delaney pockets a fortune every year to lead what they claim is the biggest sport in the country which does not own one decent pitch and any decent players are sent aboard
ts vey sad That a young family man like Liam Miller died but playing a match in PUC will not do anything to alleviate that ,

Its not a red herring. The specific document they signed explicitly ceding control has been linked to. Cork County Board took money explicitly on the agreement they would host events like this.

It was a chatiry event, for a hospice, and you have no idea what individuals contributed.

You are blaming Delaney because there is more money in English soccer than Irish? Really? Out of interest what does his GAA equivalent earn?

They own plenty of decent stadia, thats a red herring. They just dont need a 45,000 seater in Cork. The place they have there is fit for purpose and better than most county grounds.

Its not about 'allieviating' his death. It was abour Cork celebrating him and making money for the hospice he died in. That this offends you says more about you then them. Duff wasnt completely wrong, you need watching.
do you still think  this was a Charidee event . as I said all along it was a publicly event for the participants and a fundraiser for a millionaire's widow .
their tragedy was losing a husband and father not being poor  , if the players wer so worried about the millers finances they could easily have done a whip round amonst themselves and raised a lot more

the main effect I see is an overexaggeration of everything . including the problem itself.
it like the recent rows in the GAA they are only a big issue because we have picture and an easy way of disseminating them . I have seen no evidence that the numbers of incidences have increased at all .
the same goes for homelessness bullying and suicide

Seafóidín I wasn't really comparing the GAA and the HSE.  Just saying the fixtures and the health service are 2 things everyone gives out about but few if any offer solutions.

the problem is that no one is coming forward with ideas its that there are for too many  ideas around and very few hane much in common . bet you see 3 or 4 new ones on this thread before it finishes.
which to me means there is no one great idea out there to solve everyone's problems. and solution has to be a pick and choose of the ones out there . much as it is now but to make change the solution be a clear improvement on whats presently in place
